Wrestling News Summary: Update on Sasha Banks return, Big title match, Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract
Update On Sasha Banks’ WWE Return
WWE officials are hopeful that legendary WWE fighter Sasha Banks will make a return to sport in mid-September.
As it was reported previously, Banks is currently not cleared to compete for an unknown reason. She didn’t had a fight since the August 7 WWE Supershow live event in Ft. Myers, Florida, and she missed SummerSlam because she was not cleared.
In an update, PWInsider reports that the hope is that if all goes well, Banks will return to WWE in the next two weeks, which would be the Super SmackDown taping from MSG in New York City.
It was reported that nothing is 100% decided until it happens, however, that weekend is the current expectation for Sasha Banks’ return within WWE. It was also claimed that Banks is not scheduled to return on this week’s SmackDown, unless there is a last-minute change.
WWE plan Big title match at Crown Jewel
At WWE SummerSlam, Bobby Lashley defended the WWE trophy over Goldberg. Post-match, Goldberg’s son, Gage, came out to make the save for his dad only to be choked out by Lashley.
WrestleVotes reported today the plan is for Goldberg vs. Lashley to take place in Saudi Arabia on October 21st for the WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view event.
“As if it wasn’t obvious, source states WWE is planning on the Goldberg vs Lashley rematch to take place in Saudi Arabia in October.”
Goldberg has one game left on his current WWE contract, which expires next year.
